The PRISM system is designed to be tighter than other systems. This is a result of attempting to provide a higher caliber Due Diligence system than others in the market, and also having a Preference towards higher returns in both Up and Down markets.
The PRISM system does NOT rely on a "Watch List". There is only Qualified and Non-Qualified. A "Watch List" generally allows a user to "Watch" their fund continue to underperform.
The Criteria used in the PRISM system have been tested for over 10 years. This combination of criteria, requirements, and rankings has proven to increase returns and provide the end users and Investment Committee Members a highly usable and easy to understand system to Monitor the Fund Lineup in the Plan.
